Claire Evans made this Freedom of Information request to Central Scotland Fire Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Central Scotland Fire Board should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Central Scotland Fire Board,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible.

Could you please specify if there are times of year when attacks on fire fighters are higher. For example, Christmas, bon fire night. Could detail for the past five years when the attacks have been more prominent. To clarify I mean for the past five (5) years prior to the receipt of this email, specifically between 2005 -2010.
By the word attack I mean alleged and confirmed physical and verbal assault. I am not looking for any information on written vilification.
I would like a breakdown of attacks which have taken place and where they have happened. Can you detail these attacks through a breakdown of each fire and rescue area in Scotland (eg. Strathclyde, Lothian and Borders etc).
I would like a detailed breakdown of the type of attacks which have taken place (either proven or alleged), what kind of attack (punch, kick, slap etc), where the attacks took place (on the street, which area of the city), and any conviction that has taken place (if this is in your ability to expand).
I would be interested in any information held by your organisation regarding my request. I understand that I do not have to specify particular files or documents and that it is the department's responsibility to provide the information I require. If you need
further clarification, please contact me by e-mail.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act. I will also expect you to release all non-exempt material. I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to
charge excessive fees.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request. I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as outlined by the statute.

Yours faithfully,

Claire Evans
